EARTHQUAKE: Shaking Reported in Israel as Another Major Tremor Hits Turkey/Syria Border


An earthquake measuring 6.4 magnitude along the Syrian-Turkish border on Monday night caused tremors to be felt in various communities across Israel, including Bnei Brak, where initial reports indicated some minor damage to buildings.

The Geological Institute confirmed that an earthquake was felt in Israel at around 7 p.m. on Monday.

The disaster response agency of Turkey, AFAD, has reported that the earthquake occurred in the southern province of Hatay, which was also the hardest hit by a tremor on February 6, resulting in over 41,000 fatalities.

It isn’t yet clear how much additional damage the new earthquake caused, though several unconfirmed reports state that several buildings have collapsed.
